12 oz.

Pours a clear golden with a white lacing for a head.

Smells of citrus and grassy malts with juicy and fresh berries throughout.

Tastes of grassy malts with lemon citrus and lemon grass flavorings and a slight banana. Slight berry tartness in the finish.

Medium body with stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very nice light refreshing summery ale that quenches the thirst and goes down easy. The fruit flavoring is subtle as it should be.

Had to do this one since its summer time. Good beer to have outside on those hot days! Overall not too impressive but I did find things that I was impressed by. When poured it has a light amber color with a small fizzy head. Nothing too eye catching. However, the smell was absolutely great! It reminded me of a blueberry Poptart fresh out of the toaster! Bold sugary blueberry with a smooth citrus finish. The actual taste itself, has more of a sugary kick. I was hit by soft blueberry with a foamy citrus undertone. Its very sugary! So much so in fact, that by the time I was finishing the beer I had a hard time tasting all the flavors. Still nice though! but nothing outstanding. Just remember to pour it hard to get that head and enjoy that amazing smell!

A: translucent amber/orange, no head, decent lacing but fades almost immediately
S: pretty much just blueberry, with a hint of malt
T: blueberry, citrus, malt, slightly bitter, lingering blueberry finish
M: thin-bodied, light, a bit of citrus bite
O: Not a bad blueberry flavor, but a bit of a weak gimmick.
